I have an 87, I bought a new LED tail light for the bike. Yesterday I put in on the bike and wired it up. Red/Red, Blue/Blue and ground. Started the bike and checked the light, the light stayed on like I was on the brake. I turned the bike off, disconnected the wires and put Red/Blue, Blue/Red and ground. I turned the key on the the tail light worked and when I pressed the brake and it work perfect. Turned the key off, buttoned everything up and went to start the bike, nothing! Pulled all four plugs and no spark. Checked on the wires/fuses, power is going to the coils, everything works except no spark, any suggestions, thank you in advance, I really appreciate it, completely lost,

You have been asking questions concerning electrical problems with your bike for just over a month (19 postings) and have received many answers and yet you still haven't found time to post a simple introduction under the Newbie Check-In heading telling us a little bit about your riding/wrenching experience or your location. If we knew something about your wrenching and electrical experience maybe we could suggest some course of action more suited to your abilities so you could correct your problem and be on the road more. Also if you were to give us a clue as to your actual location there might be a experienced member close by that would be willing to give you a hand and get your situation cleared up. I am not sure why so many newbies want to just get all the answers with out offering up any information as we request initially. Seems selfish and very unfriendly as far as I am concerned. With that said maybe we should just accept the last portion of your heading here, "....completely lost,...." to mean social skills and manners are lost also. I was raised that someone looking for answers should at least make an attempt not to offend those that are being asked for the freebie answers. I guess I am just from another age but I rather be old fashioned than unsociable in the age of so much social media. JMHO Good luck.

I appreciate the suggestions, your are right Vulcan 2000, I should've introduced myself, that being said I think you need to get off your Senior member high horse. To suggest my social skills is lost as well when you have zero clue of the type of person I am. Based off your attitude and your condescending remarks shows me the type of person you are, JMHO. If someone on here has a question that I can answer, I do not need to flex my interent muscles, I would simple answer their question as a member that's willing to help whether they introduced themselves or not. Thank you to the members that did answer my questions, I do really appreciate it as I said in every post. This is an awesome source of information and knowledge. I ended up having a friend of mine coming over who has a Vulcan as well. My first thought was the pick up coils or ignitor. I pulled my friends ignitor of his bike, plugged it in and SPARK! So I was about to order one of ebay for a local pickup when I noticed the connectors appeared wet and rusted. I cleaned them off and SPARK. So the bike is now running. I went through all the connectors and did the same, I just cant believe it would go from spark to no spark like that. Lessen learned, Thanks Guys!
